Who are we?
We are an NIJ-funded lab investigating skeletal biology from a microscopic (histomorphological) perspective and its application to human anatomy, human health, and forensic anthropology. In particular, we apply 2D and 3D imaging techniques to the study of microscopic features of human bone to further understandings of how bone remodeling is related to age-associated conditions, such as osteoporosis, and bone aging in general. Our research includes both a strong laboratory component and the use of high-resolution 3D imaging modalities such as desktop micro-CT and synchrotron radiation-based micro-CT (SR micro-CT) imaging.
Andronowski Lab Coronavirus and Cabin Fever Student "Survival Guide"
What started as a succinct guide for our human anatomy students has become a great resource for The University of Akron and now for you! Dr. A's Coronavirus and Cabin Fever "Survival Guide" guide includes expert information about the pandemic, resources for crisis intervention, measures to prevent spreading the virus, and tips for combatting cabin fever (e.g., suggestions for hobbies, online fitness classes, visiting virtual zoos, etc.).
